50 Years since the Semi Decriminalisation of Gay Men

By  Andy Chaffer  on 25/07/2017 15:05.

Thursday 27 July marks the 50th Anniversary of the passing of legislation that semi-decriminalised gay men in England and Wales. The passing of the law meant that gay men 21 and over could have legal sex in private although private meant in a building with no other people present i.e not in a locked hotel room or not in a locked bedroom in a shared flat or house.

For all the problems and lack of Equality in the 1967 Act it was the start of modern legislation that now gives much needed rights and will one day give full equality for all lesbians, gays, bisexuals and trans people. As we move forward we need to remember where we come from and what has changed.

Some people will be marking the Anniversary by attending the Pink Picnic in Kings Heath Park on Sunday 30 July from 1-5pm. Vicarage and Avenue Roads B14 Buses 35, 11 ,27 and 76.

There is further info on the Pink Picnic on this site:
